Hamas accused of closing down another NGO

Palestine Press Agency is reporting that Hamas has shut down the Cooperative Housing Foundation NGO in the Gaza Strip.

According to the article, the CHF has been heavily involved in construction, reconstruction, food supplies, and micro-credit for Gazans in need, supporting some 150,000 Gazans with 200 employees.

The CHF suffered a break-in in Gaza a couple of weeks ago.

Nothing on the CHF website about this yet.

Hamas, as usual, seems to be prioritizing its own needs ahead of those of Gazans.
